Let UsTeach


Freedom, freedom they shouted

Freedom, freedom they cried

Freedom, freedom some ignored and flouted,

Freedom, freedom; then that voice died;

But, freedom it had survived.


Equality, equality was preached

Equality, equality was demanded

Equality, equality was then breached,

Equality, equality was then stranded;

But, equality was finally reached.



Peace, peace for it they paraded

Peach, peace for it they prayed

Peace, peace then the voices all faded,

Peace, peace many forgot and forbade;

But, peace..... It stayed.


Freedom, equality and peace
They must and will go together hand in hand,
No one! Has the right to cause them to cease
No one! By a request or by any demand.
In this time of life and living, we all deserve an equal piece,
I say freedom for all! Equality forever! And, peace let us teach!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
